CICANT had the project GBL4deaf – Educational Video Games Accessible to the Deaf approved, within the framework of the applications made in May 2017 to the PO Lisbon. The project has as Principal Investigator (PI) Maria da Conceição Gonçalves Costa (CICANT) and as co-Principal Investigator (co-PI) José Carlos Santos Neves (CICANT), joined by researchers from ULHT Isabel Sanches (CeiED) and Filipe Luz (ULHT).

The following specific objectives are: a) assess the efficacy of video games for learning mathematics in deaf children, through a comparative research design, using intrasubject comparisons (baseline and endline) and inter-subject comparisons (control group and experimental group); b) Longitudinally analyse the process of learning mathematics in deaf children; c) to measure the engagement of videogames usage for learning; d) to develop a serious game in a user-centred approach. d) To disseminate the results for all stakeholders involved in deaf children education: Policy makers, Eduactors, Families, Associations, media and general Public.
